    Where can I get a job surfing the 'net all day? A lot of you good folks seem to be able to do that, and I'm wondering, just what kind of jobs do you have?

    Seriously, I'm not slamming, I'm in awe.

    Well, that's cool...I wasn't trying to be a smartass or anything. But I tend to have a short attention span, or am easily bored, with work sometimes, and I'm getting to a point where I need to start thinking about getting out of a strenuous manual labor-type job and perhaps go into an office setting. I've never worked in an office or cubicle environment, and so I was just trying to get a feel for how much "F.O" activity really goes on. The job comes first, though, I know.

    Graphic Arts, here. I'm at my desk all freakin' day.

    Can we move this to Non? I'm sure a lot of others would like to respond to this thread that won't see it here.

    I have a buddy who was a contractor at Intel that just got smoked for "internet usage". Not "improper" internet usage, just usage.

    Be careful. Know your company policies (because they ARE watching you).

    Yup - I know we have the ability to monitor internet usage pretty closely, but we don't (being the top dawg in HR, I know these things ). They look at the reports from the firewall when it blocks a site to see if there are any patterns, that's about it. The IT guy is pretty frazzled just keeping our systems up and going, last thing he's worried about is who's doing what where, unless it's illegal/naughty/causing viruses. Again, with my being in HR, I do a lot of internet recruiting and research, so I have some leeway.

    If I get a new job, which I'm waiting to hear on one, I'll have to curtail my day usage until I scope out the scene.

    haha, nah they're pretty cool here. I know they do monitor us, and I did hear somebody got laid off for lookin at porn. But mostly I'm just on here and G101 all day.
